NO LAW IN CITY?
That's What George P. Nissen,
Justice of the Peace,
WILL NOT SERVE WARRANTS
Two That He Has Sworn Out Against
Policemen Turned Down by
Sheriff and Constables.
Justice George P. Nissen has been
unable to get his warrants against
Policemen John Furlong and C. C.
Church served, although he has called
upon the sheriff and two constables.
The justice is very much wrought
up over the action of the two officers,
whom he says took a complaining wit
ness put of his court room without his
leave and thereby committed the of
fense of contempt of court.
If upon being asked again the sheriff
refuses to serve the warrants, Nissen
says he will call upon the coroner as
the next proper officer, and if he re
fuses he threatens to swear in a spe
cial deputy and have the papers served
In Very Angry,
Justice Nissen is very angry over
the turn affairs are taking and he says
that the city is practically without law
enforcement of any kind.
"Five years more of this sort of ad
ministration and people will have to
carry guns when Ihey appear upon
the streets," said the justice today.
HOGS EAT PART OF
BODY OF A SUICIDE
Aged Henry County Man Shoots
Self and Swine Mutilate the
His arms half eaten off, his head
chewed into an unrecognizable mass
of flesh and his body rooted and rolled
in the mire of the hog yard by a drove
of hogs, was the awful condition in
which the body of Charles Anderson
was found after he had deliberately
committed suicide by blowing" his head
off with a shotgun at tr.e farm of his
son, John G. Anderson, who lives west
of Yorktown, in the northwestern part
of Henry county. The body was found
in its awful condition by Arthur Ander
son, a boy, when he went to do the
regular evening chores.
The suicide was planned deliberate
ly, as Anderson went behind a shed
back of the barn and there placed the
shotgun cn the seat of a manure
spreader, tied a string to the trigger
and after carefully getting in range
gave the string a yank. The charge
blew his head almost off, causing his
body to drop down where the hogs
wallowed it around like common car
rion until discovered by the grandson.
Anderson was 72 years of age and the
father of John G. Anderson, a well
known farmer, with whom he made
his home for several years. The deed
is supposed to have resulted from
mental derangement with which ha
had been afflicted.

horse had been stolen. It was in the

and this morning the stable was empty.
The police have a description of the
animal and they are on the lookout
for it. .
Three alleged thieves have already
been arrested by the local authorities
and four stolen horses have been re
covered thus far. There are still sev
eral horses missing, the whereabouts
of which are not known to the police.
